SICK-THOUGHTED VENUS SOLILOQUIZES, by            
First Line: To think / the churl should prove to be
Last Line: To think!
Subject(s): Housewives


To think
the churl should prove to be
a stickler for propriety!

I must kneel, a choir must sing,
I must wear a golden ring—
I must always wear the thing.

To think
the lout should lecture me—
my sinful lack of chastity!

I must sew with holy thread,
I must cook and make his bed ...
Rather to revel with satyrs instead!

To think
tomorrow, he intends
to hunt the wily boar with friends!

I little care ... I little reck!
I hope he breaks his pious neck!
To think!
